What’s the best training schedule?

On reddit and twitter I very often see people asking for training plan suggestions.

As a coach and as someone who has been coached, obviously I feel the best plan is having one that follows you. One designed by a coach to fit your local weather, your job schedule, your children's schedule, etc.

But for those who are not financially able to afford a coach or for those who don't need the accountability from that investment, the personalization, etc, I still thing you should really follow a training schedule! This is absolutely one of the best things a person can do to improve their running.

When looking to download a pre-written schedule, there are a few considerations‚Äč:

1: It must follow your work/life/education schedule. 
2) ‚ÄčA schedule that is a little too easy is better than a little too hard.

So, where do you find these pre-written plans?

Well, searching google for "half marathon training schedule" is a nice place to start. Check out the first ten links and find the one that fits the above points best.

I'm really a fan of purchasing a full book. Hudson, Johnson, Fitzgerald, Higdon, Pfitzinger, are all great choices. The thing about getting a full book is it will be full of supplemental information about strength work, nutrition, etc.
